I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN I GOT THIS MESSAGE
master-asis asked: After seeing all the hate on the absence of POC in stories, it's got me really worried about a book I'm writing. My story takes place among the nobles of Victorian England and I'm following the demographics that I've pieced together through all of my research which means that most of my main characters are mainly white. I really don't want to offend anyone or be seen as a racist for following the demographic but I'm afraid I will be. What should I do?
Man, I tend to dislike stories about Victorian England nobles. 90% of the ones I’ve read glorify the shitawful class system and don’t do a damn to acknowledge the vast majority of the people who enabled their lifestyle to be (hell, half of them barely acknowledged the servants existed). But that’s just my personal experience and my feelings on the genre; please don’t take it a pre-judgement on your work, because it is not!
One mistake a lot of writers is to assume Victorian London is all-white. It most definitely was not, as you can see:
- Black Victoriana
- The Diversity of Victorian London
- Black and Asian People in Victorian Bexley
- The Chinese in Limehouse
- Black Londoners 1800-1900
- Reading In Color: Y. S. Lee Guestpost
That said, you’ve chosen a very narrow group of people who are white, privilege, ignorant, and undoubtedly racist. And that’s okay! There shouldn’t be a limit on what kind of stories you tell and who you tell them about. It’s okay that the majority of your characters are white due to background and setting. Just remember:
- London isn’t lily-white and you should make an effort not to paint it as such. If you cannot include major characters of color due to your story’s focus, as least be sure to treat them fairly and show that they exist. And for everything’s sake, Chinese people can’t be only represented through opium dens and background props, thanks the majority of Victorian fiction. >:|
- Your characters are going to belief, say, and do shitty things and that’s okay. Don’t shy away from showing your protagonists as classist, racist, or sexist because they probably are. That doesn’t mean that’s all they are or that they don’t have good qualities, but it would be unreasonable for a bunch of white rich people from this time period not to have shitty ideas.
- Don’t excuse their behavior in the narrative. This is the most important part! Yes, they are going to do shitty things. Don’t let them get away with it, as a lot of stories do, with the excuse of ‘that’s the way it was at the time.’ Bullshit. It was just as wrong then as it is now. Don’t let your characters get away with it. Show that it’s wrong, even if in the story they’re not punished. Be clear that this is not okay.

So make a new file in photoshop like this…
now create whatever it is that you want, make sure it’s centred in the square then duplicate the layer
now go to filter>other>offset
set the offset to half of the width and height of the box and select the “Wrap around” thingy
save as a png and then apply as your background
hope that was helpful!
Commonly confused medieval weapons, a powerpoint by me.
Now stop screwing them up, seriously, or I will put a medieval weapon in your head.
Tumblr is endearing me to being lectured at in Comic Sans
THIS is a WAR SCYTHE, a scythe actually used in combat. Notice it is not a useless piece of shit and is an actual functional weapon.
The only reason why death is pictured with a FARMING scythe is because he harvests souls.
now i can kill ppl and know what im killing them with thank you
also catapult and trebuchet are NOT synonymous
